Rewards of working In Home Care
"The benefits of working for The Great Care Company is the team we have. My previous background I worked alone on my own and for me the benefit for working in home care allows me to engage in conversations with adults, being social, feeling appreciated.
The clients really enjoy us being there delivering care for them. In fact, the whole job is satisfaction and it is one that you love to get up and do in the morning as by the time you have gotten home you know you have done a great job."
What Is Your Favourite Part Of The Working Day?
"It is hard to describe my favourite part of my day, I actually enjoy being out on the road and being with the clients. There is no specific time as I enjoy the whole day. I love the fact some clients need us to support them then others just enjoy our company and have a chat. There is nothing wrong with sitting and having a good old chat."
What Are The Benefits Of Working For The Great Care Company?
"The advice I would give someone who is looking for a career in home care. Take your time and look around. You see a lot of our staff walking around with ID badges on. Feel free to ask any questions.
It is the best thing switching between child care to adult social care.
Have a look, apply… we look forward to having you as part of the team!"
